We, the employees of UK HealthCare, deserve a work environment that values our contributions during this pandemic and puts patient care first. To ensure the health, safety, and dignity of all UK HealthCare staff and the patients we serve, we demand that Executive Vice President of Health Affairs, Mark Newman, institute the following measures:

  1. Offer Hazard Differential Pay of $5.00
  2. Offer Paid Supplementary Sick Leave for Any COVID-19 Exposure
  3. Meet with United Campus Workers of Kentucky leadership to discuss staffing levels across UK HealthCare and improving staff retention and job satisfaction
  4. Reinstating the 10% retirement match for all employees
  5. A real voice for workers on UK HealthCare policy moving forward
